I now officially start this petition to the Dev;s and GM;s - the purpose of this petition is to bring back the old cyno effects so we can once again enjoy a proper light show when moving such great vessels.

I call upon all capital , jump freighter , rorqual pilots and cyno pilots who miss the light show to put ure hands up and sign ure name in support of changing this.

regards, lark.

Update: Added the word WHEN? to the topic Shocked upon request - and thanks for the ongoing support guys much appreciated Cool

The graphic effect for the cyno seems to have ended up in the pos shield instead.

Some effects in this patch CCP hit the nail on the head. However the Jump effects and the cyno are way below what CCP is capable of. Give us a light show we love it.

...was thinking of getting in touch with Justin Lee Collins from CH4, maybe he'd be up for a "Bring Back the Cyno Effect" episode. Screw the A-Team and Fame!

The new jump effects blow, naughty CCP!

There is more than that wrong designed.

In many cases - if you take care that CCP really have great concept artists and that there are enough great SCI-FI movie references out there - it's a fail in design continuity. And excactly that I don't understand. Eventually the game designers can't adapt what the concept artists want?

Some stuff [GFX/SFX] seems to be to me wrong designed or just a layout/placeholder actually.
Some effect are really look like cheap WOW IN SPACE.

From my pov!

I remember, as a newbie, the first time I saw a number of capitals jump in, all with the jump cone thing. It was an awesome thing to watch, and it still looked damn cool before Apoc.

It needs to be brought back really. The current effects are just boring. A 2km long ship just appearing in space with a 'plop' and a ripple isn't a very impressive thing to see.

They need to bring back old effect (maybe with a little more shinies) and bring back some SOUND to it!

Yep, the jump effect of a jump capable ship should be very different than jumping using a stargate.
The effect from ships using a bridge should be similar to using a stargate though.

I say an updated version of the old one. Had a nice sound to it.

The small tractor Beam effect would actually be a nice in between for a cyno'ing in/out effect.

It is very similar to the old cyno in/out effect only it is done in the new effect way. Of course it would need to be made a lot bigger and probably have a sound attached to it when it is going on.

Having the one type of effect for a number of things tells me that CCP might have run out of time when working on this patch & once they knew it was going to happen they just assigned a single effect to a number of things.

I personally think it would of been better to have postponed the release for a short while to get everything working correctly as new users are now going to be greated by a client that has sound, graphic & some other problems & I don't know about anyne else but I wouldn't think this would be a good thing.

Anyway CCP do something soon. (I am not even a cap pilot but I like to know when something so problematic has entered the field)

I don't mind that effect when jumping through a jump bridge or gate but as a cyno effect, it's lame.

/Signed, for 'reentry only'

Cyno-reentry should by flashy enough so it can function as a weapon of terror with multiple jump-ins.

The actual jump can be a rabbit doing back flips for all I care, but destination should be made to tremble!
